Main Question or Discussion Point
For you statisticians out there, I have long wondered about the possibility of evaluating the "truth" of personal claims by using statistical analysis. Considering the incredible success of demographics and other fields, might this also be possible. If you look at my other threads you will find that I make the argument at times that we cannot readily dismiss claims of the paranormal simply because we lack sufficient evidence. Could scientific evidence exist - one way or the other- in the statistical evaluation of a well designed questionare...for claims of ghost encounters for example?
